Peppered Moth Simulation

Students investigate the process of natural selection in peppered moths. In this natural selection lesson plan, students simulate peppered moths in environments similar to those during the industrial revolution. Students use white paper circles and newspaper circles to represent the moths. A "predator" removes all visible moths and students record their observations. Students answer questions about survival, coloration, and natural selection.
